Go Mama Monday: Cute As a Button Flag!

I love buttons.
I love how creative people have been with buttons!
I decided I needed my own button art.

Just in time for the 4th of July, here she is!!

 I love that I had everything on hand for this project!!
A cheapy frame, white scrap fabric, assorted buttons!

 Cut your fabric a little larger than the cardboard frame insert.
Iron all the wrinklies away!

 Stretch the fabric over the front of the cardboard and glue it.

 Lay out your buttons and glue them in place

Ric-rac for the pole and a random star for fun and you're done! 

 Simple, but cute I think.

And it goes so well with my patriotic printable!!

This is a great project - you had the perfect buttons too!! You reminded me of a similar project with quilling - now if I had only taken pictures :-) Love how you have it arranged - wave on! I've linked over from the WhipperBerry Friday Flair where I've linked up too, I'd love it if you'd pop on over.
Hugs, antonella :-)

I love the button flag. I will have to do one up. Lots and lots of buttons and I use patriotic theme for the whole summer so will be a great addition to my things.
